This guide contains everything you need to start joining!
The joining process is easy, to start, click Joining and Rules. This
section includes what you need to follow in order to be a member and
what creatures you can role-play as.
You can only role-play as a species if it is labelled on the joining and
rules page. If it isn't, you may be able to earn the right to play that
character after being at Wolf Mountain for a period of time. Dragons and
other Mythicals are playable once you receive an egg (either from a
breeding pair of Dragons or from getting lucky at a Blessing day).
Once you've read the rules, go onto the Registry to join officially.
You need not wait for a reply, unless you have a certain query. However,
make sure you check back on the board regularly to see if your character
has been registered successfully.
People role-play differently, so it's hard to make a proper guide on how
to do it. However, in this guide some of the basic skills will be
discussed for those who have never role-played before. From this you can
adapt your own versions and individual skills.
The most basic thing is distinguishing action and speech. Actions are
generally written in italics (the HTML for italics is <i>text here</i>)
or inside *'s etc. Speech is left as it is.
*The black and white wolf took a step to the left whilst tilting her
head to examine the large mountain up ahead. Her eyes narrowed,
something was definitely lurking just out of sight, she could just sense
I wonder what it could be...
*She whispered to herself, padding a little closer even though her whole
body was telling her to turn back*
The more detail you include in your post, the more interesting it will
Fighting is straight forward too. There are two main types of fighting
in play-by-post RPGs like Wolf Mountain. These have to be decided on at
the start of the fight.
1. Auto-Hit = Your moves hit the opponent straight away. Some
people prefer this method of fighting, it is generally quicker and
requires a bit of experience.
For example: *The wolf grabbed the bear's foot in its mouth and bit down
2. Normal Fighting = You can't decide whether or not the moves
hit, however you must be careful to avoid power play. A player that
refuses to get damaged counts as power playing.
For example: *The lion leapt at the wolf, aiming for its side*
If you want to learn more about battling, the best thing to do is look
at the Battling Grounds board and read other peoples posts. This way you
can see which style you like best and see what is acceptable when
Blessings can also be used in battle. These are found on Blessing Days
and you can also win them by fighting ranked creatures and winning.
There are also a few other ways you can get them too, but you must work
them out for yourself.
Blessings can leave your character tired, so be careful when you use
them. Water blessings do slightly more power near water etc.
